The major Industrial employers in the region historically have been General Dynamics, Pfizer, Dow Chemical, Northeast Utilities, and US Naval Submarine Base. Casino Gaming with associated entertainment and hotel venues has become a major employment source in Southeastern Connecticut. It is estimated that a total of over 20,000 persons are now employed. Other large non-industrial employers include Computer Sciences Corporation and the region’s three major hospitals, Lawrence & Memorial, William Backus, and The Westerly Hospital.

Pfizer has recently completed a major expansion, including a new Central Research Facility. The project included the creation of 2000 new jobs located in a new 500,000 square foot research building in Groton and a 790,000 square foot office complex on a 24 acre site in New London.

The Tourism Industry is enhanced by the growth of the two casinos, the recent renovation and expansion of the Mystic Marine aquarium, and the popular Mystic Seaport.

Persons moving into the region from other areas are filling many new jobs created at the Casino Resorts and Pfizer.
